The only book to cover physical therapy for dogs, Canine Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy, 2nd Edition provides an understanding of physical therapy techniques and intervention for dogs suffering from debilitating conditions. The book includes four new chapters, hundreds of illustrations that highlight key concepts and procedures, and case studies and specific therapies that can be used as guidelines for the management of clinical patients. Author Darryl Millis offers the perspective of a veterinarian skilled in orthopedics and orthopedic surgery, and co-author David Levine is a respected physical therapist with experience working with both dogs and human patients. By applying the principles of physical therapy described in this unique book, and by viewing therapy and exercise videos on a companion website, you can help dogs achieve a faster and more complete recovery.

"Overall, this book is an extensive text for anyone interested in pursuing canine rehabilitation and physical therapy" Reviewed by: Helen Davies, University of Melbourne on behalf of Australian Veterinary Journal, March 2015

""Overall, this book is an extensive text for anyone interested in pursuing canine rehabilitation and physical therapy or for those intending to refer dogs to such practitioners. In association with a good anatomy text or extensive anatomical knowledge, it provides clear descriptions of where, when and how to apply the range of physical therapies that are currently in use." "The 2nd edition has increased in both size and weight, from under 1 kg and 526 pages to over 2 kg and 760 larger (nearly A4) pages. Hence it is no longer something for a student to carry around, but would be a useful addition to a reference shelf. This new edition reflects the large increase in published material in this area in the past decade. The 1st edition (2004) had 26 contributors, only 9 of whom have made it into the list of the 46 contributors to this edition. The 2nd edition is therefore mostly a different book rather than just an updated version of the 1st, even though the basic structure has been retained." "The anatomy section is much the same and mostly taken from the recent edition of Miller's guide to the dissection of the dog with the coloured versions of the figures replacing the line drawings shown in the previous edition. Apart from that, and the introductory sections, the rest of the book has been considerably expanded and mostly rewritten to reflect recent advances and to include a lot more reference to journal articles. The description of the therapeutic modalities now includes not only a detailed description of exercises and manual therapies, but also access to a website where some of the exercises are demonstrated." "There are useful sequences of photographs demonstrating these modalities, which have been retained (now in colour) in the 2nd edition, with occasional variations, however, such as the change from 'Effleurage' (Figs 18-29 in the 1st edition) to 'Compressions applied to tissues' (Figs 27-30) with different images used in this edition. As physiotherapy is a manual and applied science, the large number of illustrations is a useful and essential adjunct to the text." "Access to the website does require a few minutes to register, but then is easy enough to repeat. The website videos are mostly clear and helpful, but the website appendices are tables of muscle and ligament anatomy and function (from the 1st edition) and perhaps should have been included in the book itself. However, PDF copies can be downloaded easily enough for future reference.?"
